“The Memory and Wellness Center is truly a gift to our community, starting with the comprehensive memory evaluation that often helps diagnose a memory disorder and begin a treatment plan with a patient's physicians,” said Karen Hoffheimer, Caring Hearts president. Hoffheimer is co-chairing the walk with board member Deborah Lindstrom and auxiliary member Morgan Green. “The Day Center provides such a special and secure place for families to bring spouses or parents who are experiencing memory loss, and the caregiver support programs have such a positive impact on life at home.”
Participants who raise a minimum of $25 receive a Keep Memories Alive black tie T-shirt. For more information or to register for the walk, call 561-297-4066.
